CVx EXPO22, Scottsdale Have Much to Offer

Scottsdale, Ariz.? Why would anyone choose the seventh largest city in Arizona for a conference? Well, CVx EXPO22 takes place Nov. 2-4 in Scottsdale, because the city and the Talking Stick Resort and Casino have so much to offer.

First, let’s be honest. The Talking Stick Resort and Casino is located on the Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Reservation, which is separated from Scottsdale only by the Pima Freeway (101). With great attractions nearby, The Talking Stick Resort and Casino is a perfect place to hold up while figuring out what you may want to see or do first.

Of course, CVx EXPO22 has plenty of networking time planned for you to get to meet and get to know your colleagues, along with two tracks of concurrently running educational sessions and an exhibition area that includes an opportunity to socialize and show off products and services at your booth, tabletop or cabana.

The Talking Stick has more than 800 slot machines, and table games such as Blackjack, Poker, Craps and EZ Baccarat. It has four restaurants, a beautifully appointed golf course and entertainment.

However, you may want to answer the “why Scottsdale” question yourself. This can be done by exploring the Sonoran Desert in Scottsdale, Phoenix and beyond on one of the area’s many scenic hiking trails, biking adventures and horseback riding treks.

Scottsdale has more than 300 restaurants and nightlife venues, plus plenty of outdoor activities and authentic Southwest experiences. And if you don’t want to venture into Scottsdale,
